Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick Are Hanging Out, So Does This Mean She & Justin Bieber Are Over?
While most people are starting 2016 with resolutions, celebrities are kicking off the new year with new relationships — or at least according to some pretty convincing rumors. First, there's Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles' romantic getaway. Then Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were spotted together at an Australian music festival. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have been making headlines for packing on the PDA. Although with Biebs, nothing is official until he says it is. While he's been hanging out with Baldwin in Anguilla, his rumored hookup buddy Kourtney Kardashian had a family day with Scott Disick and two of their kids on Sunday. The Disick bunch went to the movies, according to HollywoodLife. So, what does this all mean for Bieber and Kardashian?
On Sunday, Kardashian shared a photo of a scenic backyard with the following quote: "People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening." Is this a 2016 mantra to be a better listener or is it a shoutout to all of the rumors about her love life? Regardless, it's pretty fitting and cryptic. She's essentially saying that people will think what they want to think, but that doesn't mean they're right.
Since it seems complicated, let's explore the possibilities of what the Bieber/Baldwin and Kardashian/Disick sightings could mean for the Bieber/Kardashian fling. I've rounded up three plausible explanations.
1. She's Rebuilding Her Relationship With Scott
It's been reported that Kardashian and Disick are "a family unit" again — whatever that may mean. Their latest trip to the movies could signify that they're trying to make their relationship work for the kids' sake. Regardless of whether she's hooking up with Bieber (or ever was), that doesn't mean she wouldn't rather be with Disick and her family.
Since Bieber has been partying it up with Baldwin, maybe that was Kardashian's cue to go back to Disick and nix all the nonsense. Considering she once dumped Disick over his party boy ways, it's confusing that she'd spend time with Bieber in the first place. Maybe for now she's putting the "Sorry" singer on the back burner to focus on family.
2. She & Bieber Are Keeping Their Fling Underwraps
All along, the Bieber and Kardashian rumors suggested that the two secretly had been hooking up for months. If my timeline is correct, that means this was all happening as Bieber seemed to pine over Selena Gomez on Instagram and IRL. (Remember when he serenaded Gomez with "My Girl"?) Perhaps the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and the singer only see each other occasionally.
Just because she's spending time with Disick, it doesn't mean that they're getting back together. As previously reported, she brought the kids to see him in rehab. On episodes of KUWTK, she's said he'll always be in her life in some capacity. One family outing doesn't mean they're getting married or that she isn't still spending time with Biebs on the side. Kardashian has never been a huge clubber, so it could make sense she had a way more chill New Year's Eve than Bieber.
3. Kourtney & Bieber Are Officially Over
Since they were both spotted with other people, this could signify the fling is officially donezo. It's been a few weeks since there were any updates about the two of them being together. The fact that Bieber went on a romantic getaway with another girl doesn't quite seem like he's trying to win over Kardashian, now does it?
It may sound immature, but maybe being photographed with Disick was her response to Bieber and Baldwin's over-the-top PDA and a way of saying she's over it. This doesn't necessarily mean she's back together with Disick either — she could very well be single and enjoying her independence.
There's only two people who know the answer to this question. So I guess fans will just have to wait and see what happens next — it's only a matter of time before Biebs posts another rumor-fueling photo on Instagram.
